Reese- The Budding Independent Star



Yesterday, I went to check out one of Atlanta’s up and coming indie artist, Reese. He recently released the first single “MOLLY” off his soon to be released mix tape Reese VS The World 2. The highly anticipated mix tape brings a fresh new look to hip hop music and culture! An avid skateboarder and lover of fashion and art, his “designer trappin” lifestyle is enough to keep something to rap about. I sat down with Reese and listened to the some music off Reese Vs. The World 2 mix tape, (which is going to be one of the dopest out at the end of the month) and others in his catalogue (which is extensive, might I add). He discussed whether or not he wants to stay independent and what independent artistry means to him. When asked what his plans were he simply said, “Look at what I’ve accomplished independently, do you think I need to be signed to a major label?” all I could do was shake my head and say no.

The mix tape, which is hosted by DJ Don Cannon, serves up hard-hitting high hats and trap beats from an all star cast of producers with,  Don Cannon, Sonny Digital, and Pharrell to name a few. For Reese to only have been rapping 4 years, he is proof that big things can happen when you’re serious about your craft!
